I have several questions so I hope you guys can help. My grandfather passed in October and has a trust set up with his current wife. The wife is not the mother of my dad nor any of the kids. Now since he died she has stated that she changed the trust and added her own kids. Before he died there was land that was to be deeded to each of the kids but is included in the trust. Can a trust be altered once on party has passed? Is a trust ever made public record? How can I protect what is left of the estate before this women sells it all and runs with the money.
